Hold hands with Jesus and Darwin
By Wisconsin Public Radio In lectures on European Cultural History 1660 to 1870 from Madison Wisconsin, George L. Mosse directed us to read this book in 1982 and counted the success of the impact of his class on the number of suicides out of the thousands. If you would like to be a rationalist and follow the evidence of natural selection while maintaining an ability to respect, forgive and be conversant with Christendom, you need to read this book. The English is modern and precise, beautiful. Your mind and diction will not be injured by this book. If you could craft your sentences as well as "George Elliot" you might one day be buried nearby to Karl Marx in London. Feuerbach shows how people put their best ideas into Christianity. For a thousand years the best minds of Western Civilization helped refine the unsynonymous known as God. Elliot, knowing that Deutsche and English are part of the same lingusitic family, like a ballerina, makes The Essence of Christianity a gift to you. Available in hard copy for as little as $2 plus postage. Her translation frees one from childhood. I have to stop.
